We have changed the entire computer, changed the OS, changed the wireless router, changed the modem, upgraded drivers, plugged the DSL modem in different phone jacks -- to no avail. Nothing seems to matter or affect the connection.

It's completely erratic.
Well, Hm.
I don't know. Call the provider and explain it to them, maybe they have equipment that can see how your signal is.
Maybe there's a bad line filter on one of the phone extensions.
